What's Happening with Cancer Research and Treatment

Dr. Frank Senecal has practiced oncology in the South Sound for more than 30 years. He is the founder of Northwest Medical Specialties and serves as St. Joseph Hospital’s Director of Oncology. Dr. Senecal is also the Medical Director of Hospice of Tacoma, Chairman of the Department of Medicine and Chief of Staff at St. Francis Hospital, and is a Fellow of American College of Physicians.

Dr. Senecal graduated with high honors from Indiana University for both undergraduate and Medical School and continued his post-graduate medical training at the University of Washington. He completed his fellowship at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle and  is also Board certified in Internal Medicine and Hematology & Oncology.

Passionate about cancer research, Dr. Senecal founded the South Sound Cancer Awareness Research Expansion (CARE) Foundation in 2008 to help bring top research trials to the South Sound and has published several scientific research articles. He firmly believes that research is the path to the cure and making research available locally to advanced stage patients – so that they may receive treatment close to home surrounded by family and friends – is a top priority.
